We didn't actually make it to the lakes but we did hike from the village to the cross and we walked towards a view point 1 or 2 kilometers further. It has some great views along the way and especially on top of the hill...More

Had an amazing afternoon driving to the Lake. It took the best part of an hour with a view stops in a 4WD on an exciting and testing dirt road. I hate to recommend driving, as it is a nuisance for the hikers, however we...More

Best place to sleep in a tent. Divine in half of August when the Perseids are folding. It is also cool for hiking.

The lakes are overall quite uninteresting. 4WD fans will have great fun getting there through the challenging road. Views of the mountains and the glaciers from the lakes are particularly awesome, especially in the late afternoon.

First of all, I will apologize to all hikers on that trail. It is a challenging hike but we drove it up with our Toyota Prado. It is an amazing road, challenging at times and need a high clearance vehicle with 4Low. The landscape is...More

We did the hike from Mestia to the cross and then to the lakes. It took us 2 hours to get to the cross and another 2 to the Koruldi lakes. On our way down we were back in Mestia after a bit more than...More

It is a "must to do" when being in Mestia, but please read! I am just a simple man-with no special physical preparation. And these are my thoughts about this trip (mostly up to cross). You have to go well prepared! Especially with water. We...More
